Great Wall Jinshanling Self-guided Tour

TOUR 0B:  Rent our vehicle (with driver) to hike Jinshanling Great Wall by yourselves



The Jinshanling Great Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, while partially restored, is not nearly as crowded as Badaling or Mutianyu, allowing you to have a more intimate experience with the wall. Jinshanling is known for it many beautiful watchtowers, as well as the way it winds and snakes its way along the mountains. When you first get up on Jinshanling you will be stunned.



Detailed Tour Itinerary


    Our car or minivan will pick you up anywhere within the 3rd ring road, probably between the times of 8:00 - 8:30 am. From your pick up point we will drive directly to the Jinshanling Great Wall. The drive should take a little over 2.5 hours. When we arrive in Jinshanling, the driver will park the vehicle in the parking lot outside the entry gate. From there, you'll walk to the gate, buy entry tickets and start your Jinshanling hike for about 2-3 hours (3 hours max).

    Much of the wall at Jinshanling is restored and the surface smooth. Jinshanling has five main passes and 67 watchtowers. Every 100 meters (328 feet), there is an enemy tower each of which is about ten meters (33 feet) high. Featuring various structures and having various functions, those watchtowers are either one tiered or two-tiered. Among them, the most celebrated are the Big and Small Jinshan Watchtowers.

    However, we don't wish for you to go too far ahead, because once you walk beyond the restored portion, there will be potential danger, as much of the Great Wall is in a dilapidated state. Some of the ground is not on good footing, which could potentially cause injury.


    You can walk toward Simatai West and make a U-turn when you have hiked 1.5 hours, or 5 watch towers. You should not hike any further because you will have difficulty getting back to the driver in time. For your safety, we again emphasize that you please restrict your hike within the restored portion of the Great Wall at Jinshanling. As this is a self-guided tour we highly recommend that you bring the necessary supplies you'll need on your hike. This includes water and suitable clothes. Please bear in mind that the driver speaks little English, so if any problem arises please call our office if there is any misunderstanding with the driver.

    After your hike, the driver will send you back to your hotel (airport or train station). As there is no guide and the driver takes all responsibility for those on the tour, a small tip would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your patience and understanding!


    Note: Please remember to bring your own snacks, drinks, and lunch, as a meal will not be provided on this hike.
    Stuff you should bring with you:

    * Tough hiking boots, sunscreen and sunglasses
    * Backpack, and snacks or energy/protein supplements you want to have before lunch*
    * Extra cash for driver tip
    * Don’t forget your camera!
